What is Sports Therapy?

April 16, 2018

 

Sports Therapy & Rehabilitation is concerned with musculoskeletal (muscle, joint

s, tendons, ligaments) conditions arising from sporting activity, not general healthcare. It focuses on understanding & preventing common injuries in sport  & dealing with the physical & emotional trauma caused by these injuries. Although the training of a Sports Therapist is geared towards injuries obtained by sport or exercise, the skills gained can be used to assess, treat & rehabilitate pain of a non-sporting nature.

 

 

Sports Therapists have the training & skills to provide:

  • pre & post-event sports massage

  • remedial massage

  • post-operative rehabilitation

  • core stability, proprioception (balance), strengthening & flexibility rehabilitation programmes

  • advice on injury prevention

  • sport-specific rehabilitation

  • taping & strapping for various injuries & conditions

  • referrals to alternative practitioners if necessary or applicable

Before I even started my Sports Therapy degree, my aim was to work in a clinic with members of the general public who wanted to become pain free & return to the activities they enjoyed. Through personal experience of injury & the difficulties of returning to sport following this, I have a good understanding & empathise with anyone finding themselves in this situation. My aim is to provide an optimum level of service for people looking to return to full fitness.
